Camera Critter Saturday


Posted by Picasa

The 1st Monarch Butterfly was spotted in my garden a couple of weeks ago, she has landed on Dames Rocket in this photo.   The second photo is jazzed up a bit :).

How beautiful! There isn't anything as pretty as a butterfly, I think.

Always love when the butterflies show up in the springtime. They were all over our apple blossoms last month.

Lovely! I love these butterflies in my garden - they love my Jasmines - I am waiting to see them this summer when they usually visit the Jasmines.

Looks like it is enjoying a drink at your flowers. Only fair you get a picture in exchange.

What a cool photo! I've never seen that kind of "jazzing up" before. It's beautiful!

"Jazzed up" is a good technique! Love the capture ability you have.
